q and also a :: Cigarette

Jonathan of Cigarette sent us these answers to our questions in this next installment of q and also a.
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?

a: “Otha Fish” by The Pharcyde. “It took a second to register up in my brainium, my dome, my head, my skull, my cranium”

q: What is the first album you remember purchasing?

a: I can’t remember the first album I ever bought but my eldest brother had asked for a Rob Zombie cd for his birthday one year and my mother purchased The Zombies BBC Sessions by accident. I then proceeded to steal it from him.

q: Is there an album you wished you knew about when you were younger?

a: It’s not an album but I wish I had heard the song “It’s too late” by Tarheel Slim & Little Ann.

q: What is the last album that you purchased?

a: Yura Yura Teikoku’s ゆらゆら帝国のめまい as a christmas present for Evan who is in Cigarette. It was difficult to part with.

q: What is your favorite memory of experiencing music in a live setting?

a: Last year I saw Sir Richard Bishop perform in a church. He played this guitar that he found in Geneva made in the late 1800’s, it had a really unique sound. His music is beautiful. When it was over I wished everyone I loved could have been there to share in the memory.

q: What is your favorite artist/band to listen to recorded (i.e. not live)?

a: That is an impossible question to answer. I think we all jump around too much to be able to single out any one artist. If I had to throw a name out, I love Ennio Morricone‘s compositions. I don’t think I will tier of him anytime soon.

q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?

a: Toilet Paper Magazine.

q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?

a: “It isn’t anything.”
